Arya vs. Sansa

Looks like there are only two categories of people: those who like Arya and those who love Sansa. Apparently, you can’t be both at the same time. As for me, I am a Sansa person. Arya’s story appeals to me (all that death god business, hell yea!), but the character is less interesting to me than her sister.

Why so? Well, I’m not saying that badass girls such as Arya don’t exist in this world, but Sansa is definitely more lifelike. Everybody knows a Sansa (actually, most girls are Sansa). But that’s not the reason. Arya reminds me of a stereotypical anime/manga character–this supercute little kid who overcomes inhuman obstacles, steadily upping her levels and garnering more and more pac-dots with each book/season. The only future I see for Arya is more badassness, which is predictable. With Sansa, on the other hand… She is more of our world, and you can’t predict how that’s gonna turn out.
